Under house arrest
I have been under house arrest for over a year because I will NOT wear a mask. I have not been to a grocery store, Walmart, Home Depot, the bank, the post office, the library, the coffee shop, a restaurant or any other public place because I refuse to cover my face and I’m tired of being “shamed” by others for it. If they are wearing a mask, why do I have to? Doesn’t their mask protect them? And if it doesn’t, why do they bother wearing it? I am not sick and I am not afraid of getting sick. This is my crime.
What happened to our country? America, the beacon on a hill, has become a prison. Her citizens have forfeited their true freedoms for a false sense of security. Their faith for fear. Common sense for insanity. They’ve blindly and obediently followed the directives of Big Brother without questioning the consequences of doing so. They are willing to go further and further down the road of obedience until all of their civil liberties have been completely stripped away. By then, it will be too late to do anything about it.
We ARE the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water and don’t even know it. Once you give away freedom, it is rarely given back. But I understand why they do it. The American people are tired, worn down, discouraged and just want to get on with their lives. So they comply. Not knowing that their compliance will never satisfy the authorities. That is, not until they are in total and complete submission.
First it was two weeks to flatten the curve, then it was wearing a mask, then it was social distancing and limiting crowds, now it is wearing TWO masks. Soon it will be the vaccine. If you take it, you’ll be able to move about freely. If you don’t, you will be like me. Under house arrest. Unable to shop, travel and mingle with others who have been vaccinated. Never mind that the vaccine has NOT been tested on humans. Never mind, that you could still get sick, you could still spread the sickness and you will still have to wear a mask. And never mind that the risks associated with it will NOT be publicized. Big Brother controls the airwaves and only allows you to hear what he wants you to hear. That includes what you see on television and what you can find on the web.
Google owns 97% of the internet. They pay apple $12 billion a year to be the default search engine on all apple devices. That is against the law. It’s a form of racketeering. Squeezing other competition out is not what a Free Market economy is about. It is what monopolies are about. It is what communism is about. Whoever tries to compete with Google (facebook, twitter, you tube, amazon) gets snuffed out. Big Tech and Big Pharm are all part of the same elite, trying to control and manipulate the masses.
“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country” is more than a typing drill. It was a call to arms for the American Revolution and it’s never been more poignant than today. Wake up people and smell the coffee. That is, if they LET you.
